"Hey, new kid, you shouldn't be sleeping here." Ayumu heard a voice say as he slowly awoke from his deep sleep, which was literally around a few hours. He forgot one of his textbooks in his Potion's class and was going to get it the evening before, but since Ayu was still new to Hogwarts and only had a month of two of experience with everything, he still couldn't get a grip onto the whole place; especially the Grand Staircase.

It kept on moving and Ayu had trouble getting places, even back to his own Common Room, so when he tried to go back to the Potion's class to get his book, he got incredibly lost on the staircase. He didn't even remember where the classroom was in the first place. Then when he tried to get back to his Common Room, he couldn't. He was completely lost, and since Ayu wanted to be polite, he didn't wake any of the moving paintings and instead just fell asleep on one of the staircases.

"Ah, sorry." Ayu yawned tiredly as he simply opened one eye to see one of the older students sigh and walk past him along with a few others. What time did he fall asleep? How many hours was he asleep? Actually, what was the time, actually? After gathering up enough energy to do such, Ayu raised himself from his sluggish and laid down position until he was sitting upright. He then turned to one of the paintings and asked, "Um... excuse me, sir, do you know the time?"

The painting looked at him oddly but only shook his head and answered, "Afraid not, my boy! But I'm certain that its time for you to get going to your classes! School may start sooner than you think!"

"Oh, okay. Thanks." Ayu managed a tired and weary smile as he got up, a pinkish white cat, his own, jumping off his chest as he did so since it seemed to have slept there the whole night with him. When he got to a standing position, after a few minutes of adjusting to waking up on a cold and hard staircase, he stretched and turned to look down at the cat, "Is it really time to head to class, Emi?"

His sister, who was transfigured into a cat for the rest of her life, meowed at him back, being unable to speak with that odd expression on her face. Ayu sighed as he brought his hand to rub the back of his neck as he said anxiously, "Where's Alex and Vincent? I think I may need their help now." He even sighed again once the staircase began to move, as it always did. He was most definitely lost in the staircase maze.

Jemima had woken up to her another day at Hogwarts, and had been facing away from the window, her dorm mates waking up also. She crossed her fingers and rolled over under her yellow bedsheets. She smiled happily as she saw the sun in it's last few stages of rising, glad there would be sun this year. She was lucky she'd woken up in time, she was still recovering from a bit of jet lag, even though the majority of her journey had consisted of disapparition spells. She sat up, and swung her feet over the side of her bed, her toes barely touching the ground. She got onto her feet with a grin and a little bounce, wishing a cheery "Good morning!" to the other second year girls in her dorm. They grinned back, puffy eyed and yawning. Jemima ticked off a day on her calendar, and used a water spell to give her bonsai tree on her bedside table a little watering. She rubbed her apple and maple wand on her pajamas to give it a little buff, and gently set it down next to her modified bass and speaker to get dressed for school.

After brushing her short green hair, Jemima put her wand in her pocket, and bounced down the stairs. Her black shoes made a light tapping noise as she did a mixture of skipping and walking through the common room, saying good morning to anyone that passed by. She had definitely gotten up on the right side of the bed today. She bounced out of the Hufflepuff common room entrance, her large satchel swung beside her, full of books and notes. She pattered down the steps of the grand staircase, stopping at certain points and moving quickly at others. She smiled at paintings, and they smiled back, and one puppy in a painting of a witch with her dogs followed her through many paintings until their owner dragged them back with a spell. She giggled at the puppy's expression, but almost bumped into an older white haired boy. "Oh! I'm sorry!" She smiled cheerfully, before furrowing her brow and putting her hands on her hips. She smiled as she remembered. "Oh, you're Ayumu right? First year Hufflepuff like me last year!" She grinned and held out her hand to the taller boy, her green eyes sparkling with mirth. "I'm Jemima James, Jemima Fabio James to be exact, seeker for the Hufflepuff quidditch team!" Jemima's eyes drifted off to the side and her face fell into an expression of the kind someone would see on the face of someone in love as she mentioned she was seeker for the Hufflepuff quidditch team. She did love saying that. She almost zoned out into a quidditch daydream before she snapped back to her senses. "You need any help?" She raised her eyebrows in both question and friendly worry for the first year. Even though Jemima knew Ayumu was older than her, he was still a first year, and first years often needed help.

Just before Ayumu was about to walk off, most likely going to get lost as he usually would since it was his first year adjusting to the ways of Hogwarts, he felt someone bump into him from behind. It didn't hurt or anything, but it definitely was hard enough to grab his attention, "Oh! I'm sorry!"

He turned around to see a girl, much shorter than he was. She had bright green hair and looked like one of the younger students too, but definitely not some clueless first year like Ayu was. He knew her name, since they were in the same house, but couldn't lay his finger on it. Ayu was sure it'd come to him soon.

"Oh, you're Ayumu right? First year Hufflepuff like me last year!" The girl said cheerfully as she held a hand out for him to shake.

He grabbed it and did so like any regular person would and said, returning the same smile she had and answered, "Yeah, Ayumu Mamura. I guess it's a little obvious I'm a first year..." He laughed, running his pale hand through his white hair, "I'm still pretty lost here, even though its my second month here. This place is bigger than I expected..." He murmured, looking upwards where the staircases went on and on everlastingly.

"I'm Jemima James, Jemima Fabio James to be exact, seeker for the Hufflepuff quidditch team!" The girl, Ayu now recalled after she said, whose name was Jemima said to him.

Just then, especially after hearing Quidditch, a smile formed on Ayu's face as he said, a hint of excitement in his voice even though he was still pretty sleepy, "Oh! Thats right! Jemima! Sorry, I remember seeing you in the beginning of the year and hearing your name, but I've never really remembered very much since there's so much to take in. You play for Hufflepuff also? Even though its my first year, I'll be playing Keeper for our team also." He said happily, liking the idea of having a broom and playing Quidditch in his first year while most didn't.

After a small pause for him to yawn, Ayu continued speaking, "I'll be playing with you this year, and the other Hufflepuffs, and I look forward to it. I promise I won't let you down, we'll be winning our first game, I'll guarantee it."

"You need any help?" Jemima raised a brow.

It was only after she asked that Ayu remembered that he had to get somewhere. He had completely forgot about it after waking up and getting all excited once the fellow Hufflepuff brought up Quidditch, "Actually-" He paused again, since his cat, or sister, which people only saw to be another pet of a student, meowed, wanting to be picked up, "Yes, yes, come here..." He said quietly while picking her up as she just sat on his shoulder, making sure not to fall off while Ayumu continued, "I actually need help getting out of here." He smiled, "This place is huge, and its moving every few minutes. I can't find my way out... I need to get to the Potion's Class actually. I think its in the dungeons? I left a book there today, and I'm pretty sure I'll be needing it.."

Walking towards the grand staircase, he watch as they never ceased to stop for anyone not even for him. But, he was smart enough to figure out when to hop on and when to just sit and wait for the right time. Theodore was preoccupied by his study book of potions. He couldn't wait for class to start, he enjoys his first class of the day, and that was potions. The teaching and the teacher providing the teachings were just a good match to him. Hearing a few faint voices -which made him lose his train of thought-,"This place is huge, and its moving every few minutes. I can't find my way out... I need to get to the Potion's Class actually. I think its in the dungeons? I left a book there today, and I'm pretty sure I'll be needing it.."

"The potions class is in the dungeons. What are you? New?" He didn't say that to joke around he actually said that in a serious way. Though, it may not come off as nice, he was as polite as his personality and boundaries would let him. Looking over at Jemima, he has seen her in potions class, even though she insists that he give her his notes he is always disagreeing to her awfully cheating suggestions. Even if he did give her his notes, she wouldn't understand what he wrote.

Looking over towards Ayumu,"In order to understand where the stairs go, you have to study which ones go to the place you'd like to go." Watching the stairs move continuously he already knew which one to get on. Looking back at Jemima,"If you were heading somewhere else I'd be glad to show him which stairs to take."

Jemima was excited when she learned that she and Ayumu would be playing against each other. For her it was always more exciting when you were playing against people you knew. "This place is huge, and its moving every few minutes. I can't find my way out... I need to get to the Potion's Class actually. I think its in the dungeons? I left a book there today, and I'm pretty sure I'll be needing it.." Jemima grinned, and jerked a thumb behind her. "If you want I could-" Suddenly, Jemima was cut off by another boy, who she recognised to be Theodore, the older potions student who's work she admired. "The potions class is in the dungeons. What are you? New?" Jemima tucked a strand of green hair behind her ear and grinned at Theodore. "Oh hi there Theodore!!" She hadn't really seen Theodore lately, and he still hadn't really replied to her question. She looked up with Theodore at the constantly moving stairs, changing and sliding, grinding and crunching as they did so. It really reminded Jemima of how lucky she was to be at Hogwarts.

Jemima was distracted by the stairs for a while, when Theodore spoke again, this time directly to her. "If you were heading somewhere else I'd be glad to show him which stairs to take." Jemima looked back at Theodore, but didn't have to look to far down due to their heights. "Hm? Oh no, no it's perfectly fine, you go ahead, I'll get Ayumu to where he needs to go." She smiled at them both before clapping her hands together, making an echo throughout the staircase. "Right, Ayumu and cat, we'll go back down into the dungeons, and Theodore can be on his way." She grinned, and was about to head down the stairs when Jemima remembered something. "Oh, and Theodore, are you sure you don't want to study potions with me? I'm doing a personal side project on Strengthening Solution, and the fifth years are doing it too, so we could like, study together and stuff!" She smiled happily, her eyes shut in a cheesy grin. She opened her eyes and started heading down the stairs. "Just think on it! Come on Ayumu!" Jemima beckoned over her shoulder as she skipped down the stairs to the dungeons.

"Hm? Oh no, no it's perfectly fine, you go ahead, I'll get Ayumu to where he needs to go." Looking at her for a little bit, he would smile back if he actually felt a bit comfortable enough to do it. At this moment he just wanted to get to class, he did not feel like get punished. Not this early anyways. "Right, Ayumu and cat, we'll go back down into the dungeons, and Theodore can be on his way." He was actually going the same way, he just didn't know that Jemima was actually going the same way as well. Shrugging before making his way down the stairs,"Suit yourself then. I was heading that way anyways."

"Oh, and Theodore, are you sure you don't want to study potions with me? I'm doing a personal side project on Strengthening Solution, and the fifth years are doing it too, so we could like, study together and stuff!" The words 'study' and 'potions' made his ears spark, because those words are very entertaining to him. So, he stopped halfway down the stairs and looked up at her, with his eyes filled with interest.

Studying was fun to him, grabbing more knowledge was what he enjoyed to do. Even if it was needed for him to study without needing to study on his own accord, he still enjoyed it. "Just think on it! Come on Ayumu!" Watching her as she walked down the stairs,"As long as it's studying, I think we could schedule something. But, at the moment I got to get to class." Though it may not look it, he was rather excited. He was always excited when it came to studying and learning new things.

Jemima was just about to say something, "If you want I could-" But then another student came by, hearing the conversation and entering it himself.

"The potions class is in the dungeons. What are you? New?"

"Oh hi there Theodore!!" Jemima had apparently seemed to have known him.

Ayumu turned towards the blacked haired student and nodded, "Yeah, I'm a first year." He responded just as he smiled, "Ayumu Mamura, first year Hufflepuff, nice to meet you." Ayu said. It was a short and simple introduction, but Ayu really had to get out of the Grand Staircase and get his books before class.

"In order to understand where the stairs go, you have to study which ones go to the place you'd like to go." The black haired student said.

"I see..." Ayu said quietly, remembering that he had to study one of the books which was a guide to Hogwarts itself. He never got the time to study though, for anything really. Especially since he fell asleep after every five minutes of attempting to study.

Ayu looked at the two, glancing at Jemima and Theodore as they had a conversation, listening, and understanding, but deciding to say nothing for the mean time until Jemima spoke up again, "Right, Ayumu and cat, we'll go back down into the dungeons, and Theodore can be on his way. Come on Ayumu!""

After she chatted a bit with Theodore, Ayu continued to follow Jemima, feeling a sense of guilt for having to use her time to guide him somewhere. But he'd never find his way through the Grand Staircase, and decided to follow her in the end, waving bye to Theodore with a sheepish smile on his face while he followed just behind the green hair and younger girl.

Just then, he heard the bells ring and he sighed, "There's the bell... Listen... You may be late, Jemi." He had already made a nickname for her, "I'd hate for that to happen, I mean, as a first year, I have a reason to be late, I'm sure I won't get into much trouble." He smiled, but then realized that he also didn't know where he was supposed to go for his first period. He got a schedule, but he definitely forgot it all over the course of his sleeping time.

Claire Rook.


(OOC: I've edited this post given the new info about the location of the Transfiguration class. Sorry that the Place is the Grand Staircase.)

Xing, Claire realised, was someone who could give as good as he got, and she was over her previous hesitations the moment that first comment left his lips. She listened politely as he questioned her disposition, chastised her actions, tried to scare her, bound her to his company, and finally answered her question. For the few minutes after that first threat about payment she’d considered going for her wand, but then he’d grinned and she'd recognised that he was only messing with her. They’d left the Great Hall while he’d spoken and walked across the entrance hall; it was almost time for class after all, they’d be lucky if they weren’t late.

“Weird is nothing to be ashamed of,” she informed him with an undaunted smile as she waltzed through one of the side doors and down the corridor towards the Quad.
As for 'spontaneous', who was it that was making declarations of broken alliances to his housemates? Maybe I should have asked another Hufflepuff, but that wouldn’t have been half as eventful as this has been. But speaking of your housemates, I shan’t be apologising to them. I have done nothing wrong except ignore their disdain. I neither need nor desire their approval. I am more than capable of handling anything they can throw my way, so much so that defending you-” she smirked, knowing that he didn’t really need her assistance in such matters, “-shouldn’t be too much of a burden, although I can’t promise I’ll act appropriately all the time. After all, it's the least I can do to thank you for reminding me what we have for class. Mister Hei, my wand is at your service.”

She dipped mockingly into a slight bow before continuing down the corridor.

Despite his somewhat aloof attitude and the fact that he obviously didn’t have a very high opinion of how she conducted herself, Xing’s company was not entirely unpleasant. He offered some amusement as it seemed he did have some sense of humour after all. It was interesting to see more that the usual façade of complete and utter reticence. She could put up with him. It wouldn’t hurt him to have a friend, and in the highly unlikely case that she actually had put him in danger, two wands were better than one.

“Come along then, I shall endeavour to protect you from anything lurking between here and the Quad.”
